Deck the Halls - Giveaway

Every year it seems we end up with a fun new holiday decoration, but this year has topped the list with an extra special, handmade, German nutcracker. It's always nice to have that one item that really tops things off with your own special style and flair.

To celebrate this holiday season, DFW Craft Shows has been hosting giveaways every Tuesday until the week of Christmas. This is your last holiday giveaway of 2010, so jump in!

This week's giveaway is sponsored by Ky of Book-Inz. Ky started Book-Inz as a solution to the never ending Lost Bookmark Syndrome (LBS). I know that I am guilty of just using whatever I can find laying around to hold my place in books. I can never find the adorable bookmarks that I have purchased. Book-Inz are the perfect creative solution to strut your style and never lose your place. These hand-crafted customizable magnetic bookmarks hold your place while the bookmark is magnetically attached to the book's cover. It won't fall out of your book and will not damage the book.

How to enter: Simply leave a comment (here or on Facebook) and tell us about that one extra special holiday decoration that you love! From tree ornaments to wreaths, there are a lot of decorations that hold a special memory for me. Tell us about yours! Please don't forget to leave an email address, if I cannot contact you then you cannot collect your prize!

Contest ends at 10:00PM on Monday, December 20th. Winners will be announced the morning of Tuesday, December 21st, 2010.

And the winner is... Jennifer! Congrats! You have won your choice of either (5) custom Book-Inz with print ribbons and appliques (neon flowers, skulls, dragonflies, sequin butterflies, sequin hearts, puppy paws, puppy bones, kitty fish) OR (4) Pret-A-Lire (Ready-To-Read) Book-Inz with print fabric and solid ribbon, a value up to $25.

  1. I need one of these...I am always using misc. bits to mark my place when reading!

    My most treasured holiday decoration is a grand-daughter ornament my Granny gave me in 1983. I hang it at the top of our tree every year.

    Happy holidays! Jessica D.

  2. My most treasured decoration is a crocheted candy cane my mother made! She passed away when I was 6, so it is extremely special to me!

  3. I have this pair of kissing M/M Claus and a pair of kissing angels that are plastic and a little on the tacky side but they were my moms, she died 30 years ago this year and every Christmas since if I haven't put anything else up these two special memories always manage to find a place to be displayed.
